Oh gosh, delivering bad news is always so difficult. I never know how to soften the blow. Good news first? No, no, that never works. Oh, I know: everything that’s ever mattered to you will be gone one day and also Might and Magic Heroes VI has been nigh-unplayable for more than 24 hours. Phew, much better. The rather disturbingly lengthy period of downtime (especially given that the base game’s been out for ages) seems to have kicked off around the recent release of the turn-based strategy’s new Shades of Darkness expansion. Players have been reporting mountains of issues ever since.
